The firm established its California presence in 2006, and today has offices in San Francisco and Los Angeles. Attorneys in our San Francisco office represent clients in the area of environmental and labor and employment law.
Our attorneys in San Francisco assist clients in complying with environmental regulations, navigating permitting and cleanup requirements imposed by local, state and federal agencies, and resolving enforcement actions and citizen suits. Our attorneys provide environmental representation to private clients across many sectors – including mining, chemicals, petroleum, technology, financial services and manufacturing – and to utilities and municipalities. In addition to years of private practice experience, our northern California attorneys have previously worked for EPA Region 9, EPA Headquarters, and the Environmental Enforcement Section of DOJ. The firm’s environmental practice has been recognized as an “Environmental Group of the Year” by Law360 for six consecutive years and is nationally ranked in band one by Chambers USA. We work hand-in-hand with our nationally recognized Clean Water Act and Clean Air Act attorneys in Washington to seamlessly represent the needs of west coast clients.
The Labor and Employment attorneys in our San Francisco office focus on complex employment litigation, wage and hour class and collective actions, public accommodations class actions, and federal and state agency litigation. They are part of a national team of accomplished trial attorneys who serve as national and regional counsel for multiple clients, litigating many of the leading plaintiff-side trends and defending employers in some of the most notoriously high-risk and plaintiff-friendly jurisdictions in the nation.Tags: BPC Members, hunton & williams, law, new member
